Mid Atlantic/ North East Coffee Conference- MANE

13 10 2011

Minded with mastery and no stranger to events Troy, of Cosmic Cup Coffee and Gerra, of New Harvest Coffee can add another successful gathering to their list of accomplishments.

Barista folk from all over the world gathered at a specialized 2 1/2 day event titled MANE.

According to attendees, speakers and a brief, lovely post from dear coffee i love you we’d like to offer a little recap.
With interviews from a short, but sweet DM twitter feed from an easy man to adore, Gwilym Davies and one of our very own attendee/instructor/all around cool guy, Scott Guglielmino.

Let’s start with the keynote speaker and 2009 World Barista Champion (apparently looking very good for his age according to the wikipedia definition, perhaps some shenanigans around his birth year).  If you have met Gwilym you would agree he’s probably the most approachable person in the industry; kind, knowledgeable, and a professional learner. His keynote speech summed up felt a little something like this “we just don’t know much…and it’s time to drop the ego’s.”  With an invitation like that you can imagine how the dynamic of a room can change opening up the lines of communication.
Scott G. (LM Solutions & specialized customer service tech.) came away with a similar feeling on the event. Scott spent his time doing what he does very well, explaining the intricate but very basic controls for finding great coffee; dose, grind, temperature. His message is the same whether he is here, abroad or at MANE, “…the correction extraction should also taste good.”  (Thank you www.dearcoffeeiloveyou.com for that perfect quote).  He is full of impactful one liners like that. Scott had another pretty inspiring moment that he put into these exact words,”The thirst for knowledge in the New England coffee community was refreshing.”

The event had great topics, full days of information sharing in an intimate layout which welcomed conversation and encouraged hands on learning.

Evenings were matched with a latte art competition, brew down event and what would be great fellowship leading into the wee hours of the morning.

Strada, lever machines and Marco boilers played supporting equipment roles in the production that attendees brag is the best coffee event to date!





Strada EP Special Edition

1 04 2011

Ok the secret’s been out for a while now so here’s a sneak peek into the Strada EP Special Edition that will debut at SCAA Houston.

Beyond Electronic

The La Marzocco engineers did not stop at the jog wheel programming, quick temperature change, and real-time temperature, pressure, and chrono readouts. Thanks to feedback from leading baristas from around the world, the new Strada EP Special Edition is taking it to a whole new level.

Android Inside

With the near ubiquity of smartphones, the technology has surely trickled down. For the first time ever in the coffee industry, La Marzocco has incorporated a touch screen interface and Android operating system.

  • 1 GHz proprietary ARM processor
  • 8 GB internal memory
  • Android 2.4 Gingerbread (with custom user interface)
  • Mini audio jack out
  • USB 2.0
  • Wifi 802.11n

Pressure Profiling is Only The Beginning

A barista has more than pulling quality shots to worry about. What about the numerous emails that s/he must answer in the name of coffee quality? With Android, checking your Gmail is now possible. Through Gmail, it is also just as easy to transfer pressure profile settings from machine to machine.

Apps & More

Built in apps include Music, Messaging, Google Talk, and Marketplace. At SCAA launch, the graphical user interface for pressure profiling will be available as a companion app. New apps will soon follow.
